Citibank Wants To Give Me Money?

I used to have a ton of credit card debit (click this link to read the details). Thankfully, those days are long behind me. While I never got behind in any of my credit card payments, keeping track of the statements/payments for 6-7 credit cards was tough.

Well, it turns out that back in 2004, I overpaid my Citibank credit card when closing the account. I guess I moved addresses immediately after closing the account, because Citibank lost contact with me. Last week, I received a letter from Citibank stating that they have been trying to track me down to give me a $92.80 refund check for my overpayment in 2004. Wow, nice surprise.

Since I’ve moved 4 times since the address that had in their system, they required that I get a form notarized proving who I am. The notary cost me $10.00, but I should get the $92.80 check in about 4 weeks.

Thank you Citibank.

4 years ago??? wow, either that bank rocks like no other, or they have a rep that has some serious obsessive compulsions! haha...

since you closed the account, i'm gonna go w/ the latter.

Wow, I'm looking forward to leave debt behind me so CC companies can chase me down to give money :)

It was great getting rid of my credit card debt and even nicer to get some of the money back.
